Hi there

We will be visiting switzerland third time.

Our last trip was planned well by taking suggestions from this forum and all went very well.

This time we will be visiting Zermatt, Gstaad and Geneva region after taking the inputs from this forum.

on our last day trip we have to travel from Gstaad to geneva airport, we have a flight at 9PM, and we will take a ferry to go to geneva.

My question is should we go to Montruex or Lussanne for a short city walk as we have 2-3 hours to spend.

Our bucket list that day includes shopping choclates (nestle, lindtt etc, and not the boutique ones) and a luxury swiss watch and some amazing food of the region.

It would be great help if you suggest where to go and which is the best place to shop.

Thanks

Nidhi

Hi nidhi,

You can find chocolates and watches in Lausanne, Gstaad and Montreux. Lausanne might be better for food. They have a department store called Globus where they have a nice food collection. If you would like to enjoy the lake, go to Montreux. For a city walk I would suggest Lausanne.

If you don't want "fancy" chocolates, the supermarkets like Co-op and Migros usually have a good range of chocolate bars at cheaper prices!
